Required: Samsung D53 Camera Memory Card (Clean with no pictures on it!) Fresh batteries
Optional: Computer Memory card reader on your computer
Problem: You have several (or more) photos that were taken with no memory card inserted into the camera, and they have been stored on the camera's internal memory. You have no USB cord to get the pictures off your camera.
Solution: I don't know if this is in the manual (as this is a used camera I purchased with no manual or USB cord). In my frustration, I accidentally found out how to get my photos off the internal memory and onto my computer's hard drive.
Here are the steps I followed:
1. Ensure fresh batteries are inserted into your camera. You might lose data or get corrupted pictures if the camera dies while you're transferring pictures. Fresh batteries are important.
2. Insert memory card into the camera (where the batteries go) and close the lid.
3. Power camera on.
4. Press the Print/Review button (bottom button to the right of the LCD) once.
5. When you see the words "No Image!" appear, press the Menu/OK button.
6. A new menu will pop up, asking you COPY TO CARD -- use your buttons to highlight "Yes".
7. You will see your camera "Processing!" It will finish on its own, so do not interrupt the task.
(Optional) 8. Once it has finished "Processing!", remove memory card and insert into your computer's memory card reader to see and SAVE your pictures to your computer. Ensure all photos transferred properly before proceeding to Step 9.
9. With the memory card removed from the camera, power the camera back on and delete individual pictures, if you want to reserve internal memory for future emergency picture-taking situations (especially now that you know you can actually get the photos off of the camera's internal memory now!)
This camera needs really strong batteries. Even if the
batteries work great in other devices they might not work in this camera. Buy
some FRESH (yes check the date and get
the ones that will expire the latest) Alkaline
Batteries and give it a try. Rechargeable (NiCad) batteries never worked for
me. This is the very reason I got rid of my P92 (same camera with higher 5.1m pixel
I suspect this a battery problem which has been described by many Sony users. The camera reads the battery charge wrong and shut downs down.
For what its worth I had this same problem with both rechargeables and
alkcalines. Fresh batteries were rejected after just a few shots and
were clearly NOT dead. Solution seems to be either use Sony's NP-NH25
cybershot battery which is made of two AA batteries jointed at the hip
or use generic rechargeable NiMh batteries with a capacity superior to
Sony's battery (>2500mAh).

Hey Gregorious03, You could try removing the batteries for at least one minute and then reinserting them, or you could try initializing the camera back to the factory settings under the setup menu. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
